I have lived close to Natchitoches, Louisiana all of my life. I have mainly been a bookkeeper, accountant, property manager, wife and mother of six children. The children are all around the Natchitoches area with one being deceased in 2002. She was a beautiful young woman (25) with two beautiful children. These children lived with my husband and myself until about a year or two ago. Tristan (14) went to live with his Dad. My husband and I adopted Madeline now 8 years old when she was two before his death in 2005. I have a total of four grandchildren, Tristan, Madeline, Micheal (5) and Cole (4), with another little girl on the way. My other children are Jason (34), an artist and writer, Mattie (30) a makeup artist, model, wedding planner, photographer, bartender, and mother, Sylvian (27) an oil field worker and Dad, and Joy (18) who has just graduated from high school. She is working now at a dry cleaners and waitress, but does have plans to attend college in Missouri. She has plans to major in music and music therapy. As you can tell I am very proud of my children. They are not the only ones though. I have a hand in raising a few more, with the closest now having beautiful children I refer to as "my" grandchildren. There is Brady, Katherine, Brandon, Ashley and Hailey. I do expect more in the future sooner or later.
